The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! :- Watch The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! on Youtube on Fire, Incompetent police detective Frank Drebin has to foil an attempt to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II. A re-run of many of the gags from the original TV series ‘Police Squad’. An Airplane type spoof, this time with the an incompetent lieutenant (Drebin) who always ‘gets his man’. Visual gags come thick and fast, and it’s impossible to catch them all with one viewing. The plot.. Queen Elizabeth II of England is coming to town, and Vincent Ludwig has plans to assassinate her using a brainwashed baseball player.But the following decades gave us a variety of similar spoof films, some of which involved one or more of the Zucker-Abrams-Nielsen team, and none of these films were even remotely in the league of their predecessors. These included “Hot Shots,” “Loaded Weapon 1,” “Jane Austen’s Mafia,” “Spy Hard,” “Wrongfully Accused,” and “Scary Movie.” These films would typically feature some funny stuff, but you’d walk away indifferently, wondering what the overall point was. Seeing a ponytailed Leslie Nielsen imitating John Travolta’s dance sequence in “Pulp Fiction” is funny for a second, but there’s nothing enduring about such humor. An entire movie filled with such scenes doesn’t amount to much. What’s the big deal about such jokes, anyway? There’s nothing intrinsically funny about making references to other films, even if you do it in a silly way. At what point did the genre go wrong and become such a dreary, uninspired affair? Is it that I’ve just outgrown this sort of humor? I have another theory. When I first watched “The Naked Gun” at age eleven, I had not seen many of the movies it was spoofing, such as the early James Bond pictures.
